Ten employees nominated by their employers were celebrated at Narooma Rotary's annual Pride of Workmanship Awards at a special dinner at Narooma Golf Club on Thursday.
The Pride of Workmanship Awards Program was established by Rotary in 1976 to celebrate hardworking and dedicated employees within the community. It encourages the theme 'do it once, do it well'.
